    Lobster and shrimp on my plate, I want my pockets so fat they inflate - Robin Whitehouse and Todor Rabadzhiyski

    In the one year collaborative process between Robin Phoenix Whitehouse and Todor Rabadzhiyski, called “Lobster and shrimp on my plate, I want my pockets so fat they inflate.” The artists are
    concluding the project and highlighting the initial point of interest. Following the lobster and its changing meaning through time, how it has came to be more than just the food, the act of eating and
    even purchasing a lobster has become a way of portraying a status. The cynical acts of the performances in Trixie will be paired with the presentation of the 2 video works and installation of lobster cages. The video works have been filmed in the Bierkade canal outside of Trixie.

    “Lobsters in the sea, its climbed the economic ladder, rising from the ocean’s depths, food for poor people and prisoners, all the way to a fancy restaurant, portraying high-class toxic hierarchies. But what has the Lobsters felt?
    They’ve been boiled and cut from their back to the tip of their tale
    they’ve been snapped and cracked, squished and licked, sucked from their strong shell transformed into the idea of hedonism and affluence.”
